"As Amateur radio operators we know that our hobby is like no other. We have the ability to bridge cultures, both nationally and internationally.

Amateur radio offers opportunities for public service ,technological advancement, and just plain camaraderie. Through the magic of amateur radio there is always an element of mystery

when an amateur radio operator sends out a general CQ call. Who will answer and what foreign country will be their home?

What mutual interests do we share? Through amateur radio, friendships are expanded world wide.

Amateur radio, by and large, is conducted, QSO AFTER QSO,on a high level of mutual respect. This makes many things possible and greatly enhances the benefits of being

an Amateur radio operator.

Amateur radio operators are a very privileged group. We have the ability and the vehicle to not only broaden our minds and enrich our experiences, but through amateur radio we value our differences and in the process....spread international goodwill! "

Hidee Ho everyone.

Thanks for stopping by and check out my pictures down the page.

March 27th 2012 , Industry Canada granted me the call sign VA3KBC.

Yahoo!!! A great birthday present for me for when I turned 60 on May 12th.

I'm very proud to say that I have my ham license and can use all HFbands running 560 Watts PEP.

Basic with Honours. I chose the call VA3KBC (Kristina, Barbra, Carol) My two daughters and my wife.

 

I live on a 158 acre farm just out side of the small town of Forest On. My brother Stan and I retired from farming in 2006. Stan is 10 years older than me.

I in turn opened a small shop with my soninlaw Mark Podolinsky.

Dealers for Hustler Zero turn lawn mowers.

We do motorcycle tires, oil changes (AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants) small engine repairs, Echo saws and trimmers, undercoating and spray in box liners (Speedliner).

That keeps us busy and out of trouble!! :)

 

I am a Wolverine SSB member and check in on 3.935 Mhz. WSSB Net. 6:00 pm nightly.

I run the Monday night net. Check in starts at 6:00pm eastern.

Talk with a good group of ham's on 1.940 nightly.

I have been spending more time on 17 meters after the net and have had a good # of new contacts. Very enjoyable!!

Looking forward to making more friends as time goes by!!
